PREPARATIONS are in full swing for a major spring music festival.
The Off the Tracks spring festival will take place from May 23 to 25 at Donington Park Farm - just a couple of miles from Donington Park race track.
Organisers said that the event will feature ‘great music, beer and food’ and are urging people to get their tickets before it is too late.
A spokesman for the event said: “Fans of live music, real ales, beautiful countryside and great camping facilities need look no further than Off the Tracks for a wonderful festival experience this spring.
“Off The Tracks is a family-friendly music festival staged at historic 17th century Donington Park Farm.
“Headline acts Big Country, Neville Staple and Jesus Jones will be gracing the John Shaw Stage on Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively.
“And with scores more musicians rocking stages in the Oak Room and Threshing Barn there will be loads of choice for festival-goers.
“They include Plantec, Lisa Knapp, Hypnocoustics, Fragile Souls, Hallouminati, Eatstatic, Moullettes, the Paul Evans Trio, DoubleCross and the Po’ Boys.
“As well as 70 real ales, ciders, perries and fantastic food, including venison reared on the site, we have arts and crafts stalls, activities for children and our renowned camping facilities and showers.
“It’s our 26th year and Off The Tracks proves that small is beautiful and can dish up top music and entertainment without being corporate.”

Advance tickets include camping.
Day and evening tickets can only be bought at the gate and are subject to availability.
